Lupus miliaris disseminatus faciei: report of a new case and brief literature review.

Dermatol Online J. 2013;19(3):4

Authors: Rocas D, Kanitakis J

Abstract
Lupus miliaris disseminatus faciei (LMDF) is a rare dermatosis with characteristic clinicopathological features but of unknown etiolgy. We report a new typical case of LMDF. A 29-year-old man presented with an asymptomatic, micropapular midfacial eruption. Histological examination revealed a dermal granulomatous reaction with central areas of necrosis and occasionally degenerated hair follicles. Workup for sarcoidosis was negative. A moderate improvement was achieved with systemic treatment with doxycycline. A brief overview of the main features of LMDF is presented.
